EA’s upcoming sequel, Star Wars Battlefront II, is one of the most anticipated titles this year, and fans will get to enjoy new footage of the title later this month at Gamescom.

Star Wars Battlefront II looks much more promising than its predecessor, in terms of single-player and general content. The studio revealed that the new space combat multiplayer mode Starfighter Assault will be showcased at Gamescom. Here is a brief description of the new mode and what to expect to see from EA at Gamescom:

Teams will face off in a swirling dogfight in the Fondor: Imperial Shipyard map, weaving around an Imperial Star Destroyer complete with speedy fighters, thundering bombers, distinct hero ships, and more. Will the brave pilots of the Rebel Alliance triumph against the Imperial Navy, or will the intrepid aces of the Galactic Empire foil the insurgents’ plans?

The livestream will be your first glimpse at the vastly improved starfighter combat, with superior controls, deeper customization, and role-based team play featuring an all new class-based system.
Tune in on August 21 at 9:30 AM PT at EA.com to see it in action, and then get ready to try it yourself. Fondor: Imperial Shipyard will join the Theed Galactic Assault map in the beta starting October 6

Star Wars Battlefront II releases on November 17 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
